First two things to vote on...

WHEN?


This poll will be refined later, but for now...

A) The Past (we'll set when and were later)

B) The Present (maybe in something like our world or an alternate)

C) The Future ( What type of future could be discussed later)

Everybody gets one vote.
I'd be ok with either A or B.

Officially, I'm voting A with the late 40s and early 50s in mind.

A) One type of Origin (all supers are varriets of the same clause/phenomenon).

C) A Few types of Origins (maybe all supers come from a few simple causes or maybe a small number of factions is fighting a proxy war)
.

Somewhere between B and C. I like having more than one cause, but too many and it starts to get out of hand.

Officially, I'm voting for C.

Interesting thread. I'd go with:

1. A) The past (When we'd finally vote on it, I'd go much farther back than most, though. Renaissance Supers sounds fun, especially with weird clockpunk/alchemical gadgets).

2. C) A few types (This makes things more interesting without being random).

When

I was torn on this as I love the idea of the pulp era and modern supers.

In the end pulp won out by a tiny margin

How many orrigins

I prefere one orrigin supers but could live with a few ..... Mr decisive arent I.

On reflection My vote goes to A one orrigin

2 votes for "the past" time unspecified (samd6; David Johnston2)
1 vote for 12,000 BC
1 and 1/3 votes for 1980s (combatmedic; Fwibos)
1/3 votes for Age of Sail! (Fwibos)


a game set in 12,000 BC will be very different from one set in 1980s
When we settle on past present or future, then we'll move in on when secifically.

So far the past has 13 votes, the Present has six, and the future has one. What no love for the Leigon of Superheros?

One origin gets five votes, many origins gets two (combatmedic did change his vote), and Few Origins gets eleven. Two didn't chose to vote.

I'll run these first two votes until Tuesday. Then we'll get secific on time, seek out what kind of origins might be cool, and ask about place.

After those, we'll work out other things.

I'll vote for THE PRESENT (although I could be down for anytime in the 20th century, especially the pulp era) and ONE ORIGIN, even though it's probably too late for my vote to tip the scales.

So far the past has 15 votes, the Present has seven, and the future has one.

One origin gets seven votes, many origins gets two (combatmedic did change his vote), and Few Origins gets 12. Two didn't chose to vote.

I'll run these first two votes until Tuesday. Then we'll get secific on time, seek out what kind of origins might be cool, and ask about place.

After those, we'll work out other things.

I'll double check all votes on Tuesday.

I might start a vote on different pasts sooner since The Past is close to double the other two together.

When In the Past?

As it looks good for the past winning I'm starting a poll on when in the past.

Everybody gets three votes. No more the two on a single period. This is just a rough start, more refinement later.

A) Pre-neolithic (Cavemen, Atlantis, and Mamoths oh my!)

B) Ancient Times (Egypt, Sumer, Homeric Greece, ect)

C) Classical Times (Between 600BCE and 600CE)

D) Medieval Times (When knights were bold and maidens lost...)

E) Early Modern (1500 to 1789)

F) Romantic (1780-1840)

G) Victorian (1840-1900)

H) Pulp (1890-1939)

I) WWII (From the Asian beginings until the Berlin Airlift)

J) Cold War (1945-1965)

K) The Sixies (1960-1975)

L) Recent Past (1970-2000)

As I said, refinements later.
